Week 27 (from Monday 1 July 2013 to Sunday 7 July 2013) [Edit]
- English : No volcanic eruptions, no wildfires, but burning passion of OpenStreetMap volunteers – represented by a map showing the colourised node density of OpenStreetMap data. Alternative views: full world as slippy map, full world as single image (67 Mpx, 1 MiB); full world scaled down, more info how this was created.
Week 28 (from Monday 8 July 2013 to Sunday 14 July 2013) [Edit]
- English : A modified 'standard' view of OpenStreetMap to reveal coverage worldwide on low zoom levels. Those (0–8) have essentially been created from scaling down tiles (slightly modified and without labels) of zoom level 9 and adding the labels afterwards. This experiment by Frederik Ramm can be viewed as a zoomable map (comparison via “+” on the right); more details of the technical approach.
